As soon as the weather starts to cool in the fall, my food cravings instantly change.
I’m no longer wanting berries, salads and vegetables cooked on the grill. My body is cravings warming foods and comforting foods.
One of my favorite comfort foods is grilled cheese sandwiches. I just loved them when I was growing up, and I still love them as an adult. But gone are the days of white bread and American cheese.
I like to make fancy grilled cheese sandwiches with some healthier ingredients. My favorite is combining thinly sliced apples and cheese. So so delicious!
I love a simple grilled apple and cheddar sandwich, but this one is even better. It’s so flavorfull and it even has some greens in it! I used mozzarella cheese, but this would also be good with gouda.
When I was in college and in my early 20’s, I used to make grilled cheese sandwiches with butter spray or simply spraying cooking spray on the bread to cut calories. This is a huge mistake. Use butter. It adds so much flavor and makes it more satisfying. Plus, the low fat thing is so over.
